This book continues the legacy as the definitive and comprehensive reference on the surgical and prosthetic management of acquired and congenital limb loss. Hundreds of new illustrations and images give you insights into the application of the numerous advances in surgical and prosthetic techniques over the past decade. It addresses both pediatric and adult concerns, and the discussion of pediatric issues has been completely revised to reflect the integrated team approach to treating young amputees. From difficult decisions on amputations versus limb salvage to treatment, management, and rehabilitation for all levels of limb loss, this book is a valuable reference for surgeons, physicians, prosthetists, therapists and others with an interest in this field. This new edition also includes chapters on future developments such as hand transplantation and osseointegration.
